The Climate Emergency is finally getting the attention of the media and the U.S. (and world) body politic, as well as a growing number of politicians, activists and even U.S. farmers.
Also gaining traction is the idea that the combination of regenerative agriculture, reforestation and land restoration provides a critical, and shovel-ready, solution for both reducing emissions and drawing down excess carbon in the atmosphere and sequestering it in healthy soil.
So why are the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) downplaying this solution? By refusing to acknowledge industrial agriculture’s role in global warming, and regenerative agriculture’s potential to reverse it?
Could Big Food and Big Ag’s lobbying power have anything to do with the EPA’s and USDA’s “9-percent lie?”
